Pedestrian crossings

There are many factors that are taken into account when assessing whether a pedestrian crossing is suitable:  

  • The number of pedestrians and the volume of traffic
  • Accident statistics
  • Pedestrian preferred route
  • Closeness to junctions, bends and vehicle cross overs
  • Demand for on-street parking
  • Location of bus stops.

We look at each site individually, as other issues may come up, preventing a formal pedestrian crossing from being installed.

If the traffic flows are low, pedestrians may be able to comfortably cross in the gaps between vehicles, without the need for a formal crossing.
